11:04 pm
changes and for justice. >> scores of people turned out for tonight's vigil, justice they say including charging the driver that killed thelma flores. changes would include making the deadly intersection where she was killed safer. that's something i'm told the town of riverdale park tried to do in the past but was turned down. the mayor of riverdale park says flores should have never died. e street that she could not. flores was hit by a car and killed monday trying to cross riverdale road with her 3-year- old daughter walking home from the grocery store. >> she loved her daughters, loved her daughters. >> she had a lot of dreams, but the first one is to give a better life for her daughters. >> in her final moment flores shielded her daughter from the suv that came speeding through the crosswalk. two other lanes of traffic were stopped to allow flores and her daughter to cross. >> is in just completely should
11:05 pm
never have happened. >> at monday night's vigil just feet from the fateful crosswalk the mayor stressed the town requested that the maryland state highway office evaluate the dangerous intersection two years ago after another near fatal pedestrian accident. >> i think speed combined with the number of lanes, six through lanes and two turn lanes, to expect pedestrians to be able to get across that with no assistance is just ridiculous. >> mayor archer says the state denied his request to modify the intersection. >> part of the reason was there was not an accident history sufficient to justify it in their opinion. we need something done. they've got to fix this and make sure this doesn't happen again. >> until then a family that has lost so much remains lost themselves. >> i have a lot of uncertainty right now about the situation,
11:06 pm

11:08 pm
slain all of humanity. >> these horrendous actions are not islam. these people are criminals. >> reporter: in recent weeks radio show host lar inglam said she wished more muslim leaders would speak out. care has called isis' actions not islamic and morally repugnant and points out people who rushed to the aid of isis are not exactly on humanitarian missions. >> they're not using their passports to go help liberate people. they're catching a passport to hell. tonight the pentagsaof its somalia was the leader of the al-shabaab terrorist group. the explosives hit an encampment and a vehicle last night. pentagon officials are assessing the strike and could not confirm whether the leader is dead. a followup on the proposed gun range in frederick county, maryland. those against the plan declare victory tonight at a packed public hearing. the family who proposed putting
11:09 pm
a firearms training facility near sugar loaf mountain withdrew that application. the neighbors had been worried about noise and safety. there's a is run yard that hosts outdoor events -- a vineyard that hosts outdoor events nearby, a wedding venue and an equestrian center. the plan called for what it said would be the most sophisticated gun range in maryland with a sniper tower and gun range and indoor facilities. a third american contracted the ebola virus while working for a missionary group in lie bear ya. he wóias an obstetrician -- liberia. he was an obstetrician and not treating patients. more than 1,500 people have died from ebola in west africa. there will be the first human testing of a vaccine against ebola involving 20 people, but none will be infected. according to nih, the test vaccine performed extremely
11:10 pm
well in primates. this vaccine is far different from the experimental drug used to treat two americans last month. the d.c. government concluded there is nothing the city could have done to prevent relisha rudd's disappearance six months ago saying the family deliberately hid important information about her missing school and their allowing a man to take relisha. her mother disagrees. >> reporter: shameka young and antonio wheeler, relisha's parents no longer want their faces shown and can no longer stand the criticism and judgment of others. >> my issue with the school board is if she missed all that school, why didn't you all call our phone? that is you all's job requirement. >> reporter: the d.c. government issued a report on how d.c. city agencies performed in relisha rudd's case. in summation it said that no justifiable government actions would have prevented relisha's
11:11 pm
tragic disappearance. why are you changing some things, doing some things differently if you've concluded there was nothing more you could have done? >> the review team looked carefully at all the facts of the case and determined in terms of the policies and procedures of district government that there's nothing the government could have done to have prevented what was a tragic outcome. at the same time the mayor is very clear that we need to constantly work on improving the systems that we have in place. >> reporter: the criminal probe into relisha's disappearance focused on khalil tatum, a custodian at the homeless shelter and his relationship with relisha and her family. reports say he was allowed to take the child to his home days at a time. she miss several days in school before her disappearance was discovered. while looking for relisha and tatum authorities found tatum's wife murdered in a local motel and two weeks after that tatum was found dead in a park from a self-inflicted gunshot. shameka young no longer lives at the city shelter at d.c.

11:13 pm
counts -- judge while deciding those 14 counts. the act from mcdonnell could have been something simple that might have been done in his role as governor. that would benefit the prosecution. however, jurors were instructed good faith is in the charges meaning prosecutors must prove that mcdonnell knowingly acted to break the law. that's obviously a plus for the defense and, of course, the jurors must believe he was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. joan rivers daughter confirmed that she suffered cardiac arrest. at 81 years old she hosted the e-show fashion police which was supposed to tape an episode just this week. of course, now the network put the show on hold. it was a very targeted hack attack. tonight that is how apple's target rising the online posting of nude photos of celebrities like jennifer lawrence. the company says this was not a
11:14 pm
general data breach of its systems, rather celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on usernames, password and security questions. the fbi is looking into this and once again security experts remind us all change those password often. pass -- passwords often. hiny injections gone bad, the ugly price women are paying here in the d.c. eaar. >> plus dan snyder talking about th
11:15 pm
11:16 pm
there was a time when really a huge behind was not necessarily a cause for celebration, a time before kim kardashian went viral with her risque pictures of her hind parts and even launched a new term belfies as in butt selfies. >> now a whole lot of you out there are going for a similar look but ofttimes it doesn't end well. more and more women are turning to illegal black market injections to increase the size of their booties and as andrea mccarren explains, there are often dire consequences. >> women are choosing these injections over implants because of cost and
11:17 pm
convenience. initially there's verying recovery time and the price is usually a couple hundred dollars as opposed to as much as 10,000 for implants. >> it's kind of like your wardrobe. it's just one of those things you do. i don't wear a suit and a tie. i got a booty. that's what i wear to work. >> sarah is 31 years old and wanted to boost the size of her behind, so she turned to an option cheaper than implants and illegal, silicone injections. >> if you're in a club with 100 women, we'll say 80%, 80 women will actually have them done. so it's kind of like you have a competitive edge. >> but her jebs went bad and she's not alone -- injections went d and she's not alone. >> certainly in the last six months i'm seeing a rash of people who have these injections done come back with problems >> not only are these silicon injections illegal, they're often mixed with materials that can create horrible disfiguring reactions. >> this dark skin feels like a
11:18 pm
leather purse. we've heard stories of motor oil being mixed with them. we've heard fix a flat, hydrogel. these are substances that go to the kidney and liver and destroy them. >> they can also lead to masses of silicone that have hardened and migrated, so firm dr. anyawu must work to soften the tissue enough to remove it. >> if you try to go in now and surgically remove it, you couldn't even get a knife through it. that's how hard it is. so most of these are done underground. >> even more alarming, these black market injections are being done at pumping parties held in motel rooms, private homes and spas. >> a few of my girl friends and i actually heard about this person. so we just went together, got a little hotel room and had a little girls night. >> it's a shroud of secrecy around it. it's hard to get into these parties. you have to be invited by somebody who has had injections done before. >> we spotted this ad on craigslist and asked for more information. minutes later we received a
11:19 pm
price list from an injector in buffalo, new york, claiming to work with lots of girls from d.c. this person promised results would be immediate and permanent and was even willing to come to d.c. for a $300 travel fee. >> i don't suggest it. i guess the a man reason is you never really know who -- main reason is you never really know who is doing it or what they're actually injecting. >> it's actually scary because it's extremely dangerous. >> one of the doctor's patients traveled all the way to south america for butt implants, but the surgeon there put in breast implants instead. andrea mccarren, wusa9. >> wow. baltimore, atlanta and new york are currently considered hubs for the illegal injections. some have led to serious illnesses and death. when the doctor tells us a lot of doctors shy away from dealing with the aftermath of those injections because as he says, reversing those toxic shots is nothing you can learn in school.
11:20 pm
know on the go, text radar to 25543 and download the wusa9 weather app. >> rough night, top. >> little rough, calmed down now, but tomorrow morning we could see fog. we had a little fog this morning. i think it will be more widespread tomorrow, so maybe set the alarm for 10 minutes earlier. let's start with a live look outside, our live michael and son weather cam. it was 95 again today, still 80 downtown, so it's not exactly like this cold front ushered in a breath of fresh air. it's still pretty hot. dew points are still miserable at 74, winds south, southeast at 3. there will be drier air moving in overnight. it's just going to take a while. here's a big picture of the radar over the past two hours. a couple light showers pushing through loudoun county. heavier showers in fredericksburg producing frequent lightning and heavy rain, but lighter activity toward leesburg out route 7 and also light activity up 270. we'll go down south. this is a pretty heavy cell
11:21 pm
headed east, northeast toward mechanicsville. on our storm tracker headed there about 11:51. you will hear the rumble of thunderheaded towards dahlgren about 11:16, not severe but heavy. deep red is rainfall rates about 1 1/2 inches per hour, so localized flooding possible. fog overnight could affect the morning commute, bus stop temperatures still kind of sticky, 68 to 78 with mostly cloudy skies to start. a cold front will reduce humidity slowly tomorrow, brings down temps just a little bit. you will need your sunglasses. the clouds will eventually burn off. so here's the futurecast. 6:00 in the morning we're in the 70s, 77 downtown, 70 in gaithersburg, 71 leesburg. notice the farther north you go, less cloud cover you have. that's going to be the trend much of the day. by 8:00, a little leftover fog, 77 downtown, low 70s in the burbs. by 1:00, yes, there will be shower in the mountains,
11:22 pm
cumberland and points west in the immediate metro area just partly cloudy skies, temperatures back into the 80s. by 3:00 kids heading home, 80s, pretty nice. by 5:00 88 downtown, 83 gaithersburg, 84 leesburg, a few showers west of i-81. by 7:00 we're still 85 downtown, again best bet is to exercise in the morning because we're looking at temperatures in the upper 80s to mid-80s by 7:00, 8:00 at night. 70s to start, 78 by 9:00, 82 by 11:00, 86 by 1:00, still with some clouds. skies will become partly cloudy. now we got 90 degrees, isolated storm thursday, isolated storm friday, 91, keep your plans. they'll be few and far between. next seven days hot saturday, 93, cold front coming through on sunday. that could affect the nats game, the ravens game. behind that front a little cooler. we're back in the low to mid- 80s monday and tuesday.
